"Everybody knows that everybody dies. But not every day. Not today. Some days are special. Some days are so, so blessed. Some days, nobody dies at all. Now and then, Every once in a very long while, every day in a million days, when the wind stands fair and the Doctor comes to call, everybody lives."

mykindofidiot inquires: What happened in Chile on 9/11?

sspock:

On September 11th, 1973, Chile fell into a coup d’etat. A military air strike (funded by Nixon’s CIA with over $6.5 million) was thrown in order to unseat the rightfully elected socialist president Salvador Allende. On that day, the strike began promptly at about 4 a.m. The military, lead by general Augusto Pinochet, gave the president a window to leave the country. He refused. He refused, and the presidential palace (La Moneda) was bombed. Salvador Allende gave what would be his last speech to the country. By early afternoon, he was found dead (presumed cause is suicide). By 9 a.m., the military had taken over the capital. Thousands were rounded up in the national stadium and executed, the rights of thousands were violated and free speech was a thing of the past. Following this military strike, Augusto Pinochet took absolute power about a year later. This lead into 17 years of dictatorship. During this time, over 3,000 were executed (or marked in the public record as “disappeared”), over 40,000 were arrested and tortured, and almost 1 million were forced to flee the country. To this day, the bodies of the disappeared and executed are still missing. Pinochet’s dictatorship ended in 1990.

If you want more information, this article outlines it all pretty clearly.

A moment of silence for the victims of 9/11 and their families, and those who grieve every day for the loss of the thousands killed.

A moment of silence for President Allende, the thousands killed on the military strike and the thousands more who are still marked as disappeared in public record.

A moment of silence for all the victims of 9/11, both in America and in Chile.
